Kingfisher says will restart operations in phases
NEW DELHI (Reuters) - Debt-laden and grounded Kingfisher Airlines (KING.NS) said on Monday it will "restart in a phased manner," with own funding, and will not seek banks' support.
Kingfisher, saddled with a debt load of $1.4 billion, has not flown since October, and is under immense pressure to raise equity fast to keep its licence intact.
"We have also shared a full recapitalisation plan which will be further discussed with a small designated group of bankers," Kingfisher said in a statement, after a meeting with its lenders.
